So you want to influence governments and have an impact on UN Processes. I will be conducting a workshop on the 28th of August (1-3pm) to help you acquire those skills. I have written two books on How to Lobby at Intergovernmental meetings and been active at the UN since 1990.



What I hope to cover are:

·         How to put together a lobbying strategy
·         Building timelines for your work
·         What to do at the National Level
·         Demystification of the UN process
·         Understanding brackets
·         What are the key terms used and what do they mean
·         How to understand the development of the negotiation texts;
·         What is your team capacity – how to build a larger capacity
·         How to build broader coalitions and when to operate without coalitions
·         Understanding the different government coalitions
·         Who are the key government players
·         Who are the key UN players and why
·         Tools of the trade for influencing the process

·         Media strategy and campaigns
